Come centuries ago, our words were worthy
It held life and accompany respect
Then, poets were like rockstars like we stan BTS
widely celebrated for their insight
and graceful way with words.
But now, poetry is dying and poets are engraved.
Those times when accolades were earned
In retrospect to our beloved poems
but all that was a matter of time
and all that was earned was soon lost
like they were never ours to begin with
because poetry is already dying
so poets are engraved.
Modernism has reaved us of Victorianism
it robbed us of The voice and Neutral tones
and a bit of Satire of circumstances
Tell me, why shouldn't poets then be engraved?
If all of these were chipped away.
poetry is indeed dying!
Rumi may have arrived in eternal love
but poets weep for his dying words
Spenser, Hopkins, Hardy, Dickens
All of these are now only but names
because their words are now dead.
Poetry is dead.
Poets are bereaved.
